Book Club selections, Town meeting information and clarification from Recycling Coordinator ~ Margo’s Plymouth report

Reprinted with permission from The Vermont Standard


It is certainly a windy world of late.  Whether the weather is frigid or slightly warmer, that wind just doesn’t want to quit!  I actually went snowshoeing last Thursday morning and it was sunny, fairly mild and delightful.  Of course, that was before the wind picked up and the rain rushed in.  The 3 inches of snow from morning snow squalls on Saturday succeeded in covering up the ice and I know of several people who slipped and fell as a result.

As the poem “Wind On The Hill” by A. A. Milne says: No one can tell me,  Nobody knows,  Where the wind comes from,  Where the wind goes.

When the Book Group met on 2/9, the books for the next several months were selected. The book for 3/16 is All that She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake by Tiya Miles. For 4/13 the choice is: The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray.  The 5/11 book is The Push by Ashley Audrain.

Hopefully voters have received the Plymouth Town Report by now or have had an opportunity to look at the information on the town website.  The Select Board will answer questions at their meeting on 2/21 at 6:00 PM, in person or via Zoom in advance of the Information only Town Meeting on 2/28.  To join go to: ID: 883 4713 8689.    Passcode: 143124One tap mobile.  +13126266799,,88347138689#,,,,*143124# US (Chicago)+19292056099,,88347138689#,,,,*143124# US (New York) Dial by your location Find your local number:
